An anti-Margaret Thatcher crowd gathered Saturday for a death party in London's Trafalgar square. Attendees chanted "Ding Dong! The With is Dead" and drank champagne, the Associated Press reported.
There were conflicting reports on the size of the crowd.
Reuters reported earlier Saturday that only about 200 people showed up, a smaller crowd than had been predicted, but later revised its figure to several hundred. The Guardian, meanwhile, reported that around 1,700 people were in attendance. The BBC reported that around 500 protested. Thatcher, former British prime minister, died Monday at 87.
